Jey Uso made his return during WWE Payback after he ‘quit Smackdown’, much to the delight of fans. He then made his way to Monday Night RAW and has since been booked very strongly. He also set his sights on Gunther’s Intercontinental Championship in a future bout.

Gunther won the WWE Intercontinental Championship in June last year and has since defended it quite a few times already. He is already the longest-reigning Intercontinental Champion in history, but no one has been able to truly step up to time so far.

While speaking to Billboard, Jey Uso talked about his future as a singles star. The former Bloodline member made it clear that going after Gunther’s Intercontinental Championship is his priority.

“The first singles championship on the top of my list is the IC [Intercontinental Championship] title. Gunther gonna have to run that. Everybody over there. He likes the Tribal Chief, you see what I do to the Tribal Chief? I don’t give a damn, let’s run that.


“My dad was an IC champion, my uncle, Umaga IC champion. Shawn Michaels. My favorite wrestler, the greatest, Razor Ramon. All the greats held the Intercontinental Championship and I’m trying to get that. That’s Pay-Per-View material right there.

In the meantime, Jey Uso is set to compete at Survivor Series in a WarGames match. We will have to wait and see whether ‘Main Event’ Jey Uso will eventually feud with The Ring General.
